Sharing Knowledge About Immunisation – new communication tools for healthcare providers
A new communication package is available to help healthcare providers conduct effective conversations with parents regarding childhood immunisations.
Sharing Knowledge About Immunisation (SKAI) is a new evidence-based communication package. It aims to improve conversations between providers and parents and carers of babies and young children about childhood immunisations.
The SKAI package includes:
- an eLearning module and website for healthcare providers
- a website for parents which answers common questions about childhood immunisations
The SKAI eLearning module helps providers adapt their communication skills to help parents who are ready to vaccinate, have questions, or intend to decline vaccination.
- The module takes approximately 1–1.5 hours to complete.
- Upon completion of the module, users will gain access to the SKAI website for healthcare providers.
- Providers can earn Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points for their participation, depending on their profession.

The SKAI package is an initiative of the National Centre for Immunisation Research and Surveillance, in partnership with the University of Sydney and other collaborators. The Australian Government Department of Health provided funding for the package
